In 1737, Benjamin Franklin shared his love of beer with the world by publishing his "Drinker's Dictionary" in the Pennsylvania Gazette, comprised of 220 expressions that, in Franklin's words, "signify plainly that A MAN IS DRUNK."

Now, the "Drinker's Dictionary" has found its way to YouTube.  In the video, a modern day Ben Franklin recites all 220 drunken sayings in a row, so viewers finally know that a party isn't really a party unless someone "Has Stole a Manchet out of the Brewer's Basket."
